Meet Adriana Trigiani

Thank you to everyone who came out Monday night, June 27th for our inaugural event of Charlotte Weekly's Book Club. It was a smashing success!
Adriana Trigiani is one of the funniest, wittiest and most insightful people I have ever had the pleasure to meet. The evening was pure bliss.

She regaled the audience with quips about her life, her new books (she's currently working on the 4th installment of the beloved Big Stone Gap series!), and her family, who all serve as inspiration for all of her novels.

She also took time to talk about some relevant news of the day, like the current makeover by Prince Charles and Camilla.

Adriana was inspirational and delightful and took time with each fan to autograph their books and talk with everyone. Unfortunately, for the people who were waiting for her at the event right after ours, had to wait a bit longer than anticipated but by the time the evening was over, we hope everyone walked away feeling a bit more inspired by life in general.

On a personal note, I have to say it was a real thrill to meet someone whose work you not only admire but someone who is obviously so passionate about what they do and is kind and warm to everyone. Sadly, not every famous person is like that.

Thank you Adriana for making our event so wonderful!
